For the town in South Wales, United Kingdom, see Mountain Ash, Rhondda Cynon Taf.
Mountain ash is a name used for several trees, none of immediate relation. It may refer to:
- Eucalyptus regnans or Australian Mountain Ash, the tallest of all flowering plants and other floral species
- Fraxinus texensis, an ash tree species in Texas
- Sorbus aucuparia, which is also known as Rowan.
- In North America (mainly U.S.) trees in the subgenus Sorbus subgenus Sorbus are often styled as mountain-ashes to convey their unrelatedness to true ashes. It is commonly believed in many cultures to protect against the supernatural.
